A Lot of Bull, Lots of Love

Happy Monday to you all! As you know, hubby and I joined the rest of the family up in Estes Park over the weekend and what a great time we had! Typically in years past, we go in the winter and in a normal weather year we would have had snow this weekend, but not this year. It was so nice to be there for crisp, cool weather and lots of sunshine. When we arrived at the condo, a maintenance man came up n a golf cart and told us to be careful-there are two big Elk bulls that stay around and some people haven't used common sense and been hurt.  The first one is named Steve and he is magnificent.  The maintenance man feeds them old pumpkins and another property owner across the street puts out hay for them.
This was taken from our condo bedroom window.
This is Danny Elkhorn.
Most of us watching from a safe distance Saturday morning. The little ones loved seeing these big boys.
Later in the morning the kids went rock climbing and then we all went for a hike, in hopes of getting some Christmas Card photos of the family. It was soo windy that none turned out quite like we wanted, but it was fun seeing Kim's hubby set the timer on the camera and then running up to join us.
All of the guys climbed up to this spot and possed.
I love our times together-outside activities, games, good meals and lots and lots of love.
I'm off to walk and then will help hubby with painting.
